The Secret of Scent by Luca Turin

Read this for some novel research.

Very interesting theory about the sense of smell.

Turin has compared compounds with different structures but similar smells.

They have similar molecular vibrations and the theory is that this vibration is what controls smell.

His theory holds up but is still to be accepted by the establishment.

He has applied his work to the creation of perfumes with some success.
